Zesco United Hosts Napsa Stars in Kitwe


Zesco United will on Sunday take a 45-minute drive from their Ndola base to Kitwe to play their home game against Napsa Stars at Nkana Stadium.

This switch of venues is because the nine-time champions’ home ground of Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola is booked for a 2022/23 CAF Confederation cup Group A fixture.

Lupopo of DR Congo is hosting Marumo Gallants of South Africa on the same date.

Levy is set to be Lupopo’s Group A home base because their stadium in Lubumbashi is not CAF certified to host competitive international matches.

The scenario is going to see Zesco and their Ndola neighbours Buildcon’s home games at Levy affected well into the final continental group stage fixtures that conclude during the weekend of April 2.

Furthermore, the disruption to Zesco and Buildcon’s home games could continue well into late April should Lupopo progress to the quarterfinals and beyond.

Meanwhile, Lupopo is currently bottom of Group A and seeking their first points heading to Sunday’s match-day-two of the competition against the pool leaders Marumo.
